accurate polls. >> yeah. >> then this is a firewall that is going to be hard for mitt romney to get past. >> it's sure starting to look like that and has for a while. we've seen a lot of polling, and there's been some variance on this. i don't think there's been a poll that's had romney closer than two in ohio. there was one ohio poll -- >> this weekend. >> i forgot about that momentarily. but mostly what we've seen over the last months and acutely over the last couple weeks is a lot of polling that has obama three to five points ahead. and the internals that look a lot like this. and you know, we've discussed it ad nauseam why that is and what the effect of the auto bailout is and the fact that the unemployment rate there is way below the national average. people have a sense of economic optimism in the state. >> right. we're less than a week out. he's maintaining a five-point lead not only in this poll. he has a five-point lead in the nbc news/"wall street journal" poll, one of the more accurate polls, at some point romney's people telling you and me and everybody else oh, don't believ
national polls have the president and governor romney in a virtual dead heat coming down the stretch, some others have different results when you look at the swing states, joining me now is mark halperin of time magazine, i am pleased to have him the here once more at this table. so where are we? >> well, if the election -- you know, i think the most important thing is we don't really know what is going to happen, the race is close enough nationally in the battle ground states even before the storm there were enough variables that one can most comfortably and accurately say we will go into election day not knowing. even if the polls go one way i would not have great confidence that would foretell what the outcome is going to be. >> rose: are there things this storm and the aftermath might affect that would have a direct relationship to what happens at the polls? >> i think will be the loss of life and loss of property is foremost in everybody's minds and one of the great things about these two candidate is, it is not just a throw away line to say the president's top concern and governor
of these kinds of polls, number one, who do you think will make the best leader, governor romney, had you been 2, who do you think will handle the economy better? governor romney. number 3, who do you think cares more about you? >> president obama. >> right. >> rose: must be 4 who is better in foreign policy? >> president obama. >> rose: right. >> what would you add to that? those are the basic kind of -- >> well there is a different variations of cares about people, who understands the middle class. i thought all along, governor romney on those questions, those character and trade questions, governor romney needed to do three things. on cares about you, understands the middle class be closer than he could have been, he couldn't lose those by large double digit margins and narrowed those. couldn't win them, had no narrow them. had plans for the economy needed a significant lead. the president has been ahead at times, kind of remarkable and three is, is favorable, unfavorable, governor romney went into the general election season based on most polls as the worst nominee of either party ever in t
appreciate it. together we'll win. >> the latest fox polls nationally show dead even tie at 46% each. romney lead with independents is at 7 points down from 12 at the beginning of the month. with little hope of images to rival the president touring the disaster zone with chris christie today, romney introduced by the popular former governor jeb bush and marco rubio and resumed the rally rhetoric. >> i believe this is the year for us to take a different course. i will bring real change and real reform. >> in florida, the latest quinnipiac poll gives the president a one-point neng the margin of error. the real clear politics average of recent polls have romney up over a point. in virginia, quinnipiac has the president up two and in a virtual tie. but real clear politics average there shows romney up half a point. in ohio, the challenge remains. quinnipiac shows five-point lead. and the real clear politics average has obama up 2.3 points. romney trying to expand the playing field to include pennsylvania, michigan, where thage in recent polls has chunk for obama. team obama scoffs. >> i will sha
. >> i think it doesn't make sense obama can hold off romney in wisconsin you're seeing a surge in polls for mitt romney you're seeing him probably going to take florida in most of the battle grounds. and i don't know why in and and scott walker earlier this summer by the national party hundreds and paul ryan saying i just don't know how they couldn't win wisconsin. if you look, it's tied oof 20 seconds, steve on your home state of wisconsin. >> it's a fact there is a dry run on june 5th. i think it suggests wisconsin is in play. if they make efforts to put there, i think republicans can win it. >> viewers should go to gretawire.com. about what it's done since 1996. keeps swinging back and forth will make you dizzy. panel just stand by. straight ahead four americans murdered in ben gazy. we don't know what happened. will it impact elections? next. look, if you have copd like me, you know it can be hard to breathe, and how that feels. copd includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema. spiriva helps control my copd symptoms by keeping my airways open for 24 hours. plus, it reduces copd flare-
us a look at early voting. polls showing governor romney leading president obama 52% to 45% among voter who's already cast their ballots. newt gingrich joins us, good evening, sir. your thoughts on the gallup poll of early voters? >> if it's accurate it's devastating for obama. obama played a tremendous amount of effort into building a ground game. they're confident they can turn the vote out early. they talked about it with a sense of achievement. if this is correct, it's a remarkable result. republicans have been saying during all of the snap shots well, don't worry about early voting because republican voters tend to be older, they love to vote on election day. all of a sudden these numbers i'm surprised and i frankly thought i would not have been surprised to see it reversed and see it obama, 52, romney, 45. so this is a shocking number. but it fits something that you may have seen late last week. gallup took all of this september questions, 19,000 people pretty big universe. looking at all of them together as one group. and said the surprise is that this electorate looks more
giving us a sneak peek. polls showing governor romney leading president obama among voter who's have already cast the ballot. our panel is back. and byron, your thoughts? >> this is a big deal. because at the same time in 2008, fwal updid the same poll. and barack obama was leading john mccain among early voters. in several key states ob dwrauma had a huge lead. he needs to do that again. romney likely to win amongst those voter who's go to the polls on election day itself. he build up a lead that his opponent can't overtake him on election day. i was in ohio. the campaign was making a huge deal. the president saying on the stump and campaign officials were saying it. people going door to door were pushing early voting. >> unless this reflects early voters in ohio going to tell us if this could with 52-46. >> that is light. -- right. ohio during this storm time, this is ads and romney ran about the auto bailout whether or not goits tok shipped to china. there has been a reaction. there has been gm and chrysler officials saying ad isn't true, it's false. a tremendous push back and mor
because the polls are so close. michigan is tied, wisconsin is tied, colorado, romney is up, virginia he's up, florida he's up, and we have rasmussen now showing the moment ump has shifted in ohio. if i'm barack obama, there's no poll now moving in his direction, juan, and states that he won by huge margins, he's either tied or just slightly ahead. that's a problem for him. >> well, look. i don't think anyone debates the idea it's going to be a very close race, but the numbers you put out. >> sean: which ones? >> they're all sided. >> ask juan about the npr poll. >> go ahead, dana. >> let's talk about the npr poll. an 8-point swing? >> there's a margin of error, dana. hold on. dana was around in '08, i'm sorry, back in '04 when the poll said that kerry was going to win in a landslide. didn't happen, did it? >> thank goodness. >> that's right, dana. just think for a second. romney has never been ahead. >> sean: he's ahead now. >> in the real clear politics. >> sean: juan, juan, juan. >> colorado, wisconsin. i can keep going. never, ever. >> sean: listen, you can be as delusional if you wa
week from today, the latest national polls show the momentum is still very much with mitt romney. juan is very worried, and then the most vial pro obama ad to date, this one courtesy of left winger michael moore. we'll play it for you tonight and it will make you sick as >> sean: in just one week voters head to the polls and decide what is without question the most important election of our lifetime and with just seven days remaining until the race for the white house concludes we can report the momentum is on the side of governor mitt romney. according to the latest gallup survey his lead is at 5 points, 51 to 46%. in addition, gallup it reporting that romney is outpacing his opponent in a big way when it comes to early voting. unlike in 2008 when obama led senator john mccain by 15 points in early voting, in 2012 it's romney that's now running ahead by an impress impressiven points. 52% of the ballots have been cast in romney's favor. it's an eight point swing, by the way, in only four weeks. with all of those numbers in mind it's not surprising that the bi-partisan battleground mod
"washington post"/abc poll shows mitt romney with a one-point lead now, 49-48. a new "new york times"/cbs poll has the president up one, 48-47. and a new npr poll has romney up 48-47, again, one point. but the npr poll also finds that president obama has a 12-point lead in the battleground states, where it matters. >>> i will come on "morning joe" are you sure you can fit in there? [ chuckles ] ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] around view monitor with bird's-eye view. nice work. [ male announcer ] introducing the all-new nissan pathfinder. it's our most innovative pathfinder ever. nissan. innovation that excites. ♪ >>> i will come on "morning joe" and i will shave off my mustache of 40 years if we lose any of those three states. >> welcome back to "hardball." that was david axelrod, famous for his mustache. he's with the obama campaign, sounding very bullish on their chances, obama's chance of carrying michigan, minnesota, and of course, pennsylvania. these three states haven't been given much time or attention by the media or the money spenders until lately. that's because the romney camp and the
campaign, a new poll out showing the president crushing governor romney. some bad news associated with it. it is a poll taken in russia. that's right, all whopping 41 percent of russians want president obama reelected. only 8%, 8% back romney. oh, my goodness. they have cancer that sort of things. those romney supporters may want to kind of watch their backs given what is happening in russia these days. romney will have history on his side heading into next week's election. the republicans have won every single presidential election on november 6th. going back to 1860's when abraham lincoln beat democrat stephen douglas. only five days to get that election in and see if the street continues. i don't see why they don't just call the election based on that historical imperative. new reports tonight that dnc chairman w. wasserman shultz got involved in dated altercation with the florida police officer. he asked her to stop blocking traffic. wasserman shultz was greeting voters outside a polling station in the city of at ventura earlier this week. the policeman asked her to move to the sidewa
the latest poll shows romney ahead. rasmussen shows romney ahead by two in ohio. i would say it's dead even but it's also pennsylvania, wisconsin, it's michigan, and pennsylvania -- minnesota. no matter what they try to say today, there's no way that chicago -- the obama campaign in chicago thought that seven or six days before an election they were going to have to fight in minnesota. they just -- it never entered their mind, and now they're having to do that, and the fancy footwork is very admirable, but i don't think it will -- i don't think it will take them too far. however, the storm i think you'll see president obama's approval rating which has not gotten above i think 47 or 48% % almost his whole presidency. i don't think it matters. >> sean: in all fairness, it would have been nice if he responded the same way to benghazi and answer questions. >> oh, stop. that's so unfair. >> sean: it would have been nice if he responded to the calls for help and the requests for security and telling us the truth. >> the decision he made to go to vegas that night after the attack in libya when he
. >> and he achieved plausible. (laughter) millions of americans looked at mitt romney last night and said "he looks like he could sit in an oval room." (laughter) plausibility is a huge victory for romney because this race is neck and neck. >> we've seen this latest poll out of the nbc and "wall street journal." 47/47, pretty much corresponds with what we're seeing out there. an absolute dead heat. >> stephen: as we know from history, the rules clearly dictate that in the event of a tie our next president will be george w. bush. (cheers and applause) we miss you, sir. we miss you. but at this point, either candidate still has a shot as long as they can win over one key demographic. >> president obama and governor romney faced off. many polls showing them running neck in neck, making the remaining undecided voters more important than ever. >> the undecided voters. the voters in the swing states who could decide this election. >> mitt romney and barack obama yearn for their vote, the elusive mysterious undecided voter. (laughter) >> stephen: yes, they yearn. (cheers and applause) yes. elusive,
to the polls, governor romney jumps back on the campaign trail. but first from fox this wednesday night, assessing the damage after the unprecedented storm and with each hour the full scope of sandy's destruction is becoming clearer. earlier today, president obama toured the destruction in atlantic city and really up and down the jersey shore with the jersey governor chris christie. republic and democrat working together. we'll have more on that in a minute. as you know this storm affected tens of millions of people up and down the east coast, as far as inland as chicago. the hardest hit states by far, new jersey and then new york. this is new video of an nypd helicopter crew rescuing stranded people off the roof of a house in staten island. the home surrounded by some pretty deep water. and, remember these pictures of the firestorm. breezy point section of queens. they are really stunning. it burned out of control for hours on the night of the storm. we'll take a look at these new and staggering aerials of the aftermath. about 100 homes in the middle class community burned to the groun
romney is ahead by a tick in most of the national polls, that raises the prospect of a split decision. president obama winning the electoral college and mitt romney winning the popular vote. i think the aftermath of hurricane sandy makes that more likely because it's likely to depress turnout in the safety democratic seats in the northeast. that doesn't affect the electoral college. places like new york and new jersey are still going to vote democratic but it could have an impact on this prospect that for the second time since 2000, we would have a disparity between the finish and the popular vote and the electoral college. >> and the only question becomes do we end up with 36 days of counting, maybe not hanging chads but maybe something else. reid, do you agree with susan? >> yeah. i think the prospect for a split decision certainly exists. based on the swing state polls, it's clear president obama has a lead, a measurable lead in the electoral college map. >> and more so because of the hurricane do you think, reid? >> i'm not -- i'm not entirely willing to do that. i don't think it'
: pennsylvania, minnesota, and michigan. michigan, of course, is romney's native state and polls suggest obama has the lead but mitt romney has closed the gap to the margin of error. obama campaigns scoffs at this and senior obama advisor axelrod said if they lost any of those he would shave off his mustache of 40 years but mitt romney has considered headed there a sign they think the plafield is expanding beyond the seven states that have been hotly contested and present the romney campaign opportunity to put obama on defense and have the offense ease the path to 270. very, very close, six days left, polls suggest everything is tight and no way to know who has the edge. so, no time for napping, either. >>shepard: i was hoping you got a nap while everyone else was working. >>carl: not a chance. romney is staying busy. >>shepard: thank you, carl cameron. massive gridlock around new york city, 4.3 million people use the subways and there is no subway. commuters returned to work and many are trapped if their homes. the national guard rescuest ahead, and, also, there were buses coming out of harle
obama and governor mitt romney in a dead heat, with five days to go before americans get to the polls. your voice, your vote. and abc's jake tapper has more. >> reporter: hurricane sandy has forced the president to cancel his appearance at seven campaign events. but he may have gotten something more valuable. >> you're going to be okay. everybody's safe, right? >> reporter: the opportunity to lead and be seen leading. today with new jersey's republican governor chris christie a shelter in brigantine, new jersey. >> hang in there. >> thank you. >> reporter: theirs was a most public display of bipartisan ship today, a trait many undecided voters process to love, one sorely lacking in washington, d.c. >> he has worked incredibly closely with me and i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern. >> governor christie, throughout this process, has been responsive, he has put his heart and soul into making sure that the people of new jersey bounce back. even stronger than before. >> reporter: the president seems confident. his campaign manager said they have the math, romney's
of the economy. if you're a romney voter or you're leaning towards romney in the polls probably have the opposite view. that's where we're going to see in the exit polls come november 6th. >> all right. thank you very much. we appreciate it. taking the audience to breaking news. new video, president obama walking off the helicopter after the aerial tour of new jersey with governor chris christie right there who's certainly been praising the president's response to the storm. we'll hear from the two of them likely within the hour. or very soon. about to take a ground tour. imagine they're talking with people who lost everything or much of what they have. so we'll bring it to you. another image of the day likely the image so many will be talking about and maybe leading up to the election. one of the chief surrogates for governor romney side by side with president obama as they should be in crisis. like this. and we'll have much more on that. president obama will return to the campaign trail tomorrow after wrapping up the tour of the storm damage today in new jersey. tomorrow the president turns to
, continue build the momentum and as you said our poll shows he's picked up a lot of ground here. romney arrived in florida tuesday night ahead of three campaign events here today. he'll be join by senator marco rubio and former florida governor jeb bush as he makes stops outside of miami and along the i-4 corridor, looking to reach crucial swing voters. our new poll now has romney in a dead heat with the president after trailing by nine points just over a month ago. romney is now edging out the president among seniors and has cut his lead with women voter in half. today will be romney's first campaign rally since hurricane sandy pounded the east coast. tuesday he was in the key state of ohio but focused his attention on the storm as he helped supporters box supplies for victims. >> part of the american spirit. the american way to give to people who are in need. and your generosity this morning touches my heart and i appreciate what you've done. >> reporter: in florida romney is expected to continue pushing a message of bipartisanship. our polls show voters believe he'll do a better job
specifically. the polling in ohio we'll get to in a little while. terrible for romney. the 31st day of october polls taken in those states every day and romney has been ahead once in any poll in either of those states in the entire month of october. >> cenk: in those 30 days there has been 1.5 trillion polls. >> and they have so much money to spend they might well spend it. they took in $120 million the first two weeks of october. >> cenk: you think they are in such bad shape they might try to get votes where they thought they didn't have a chance previously. is this a head fake? >> yes, it could be a head fake. that would have happened a few weeks ago. i think they're saying, look, we have a lot of money. we have not spent it well. >> cenk: he has run this campaign in an awful way for a guy who is supposed to be a brilliant ceo. he has too much money left when obama destroyed him early on when he spent it wisely in the beginning. should i spend it in rhode island? no you should have spent it in rhode island earlier. a poll putting president obama up 50-45 and then public policy polling, 50-45
week. talking you to about a new poll, wtake about polls all of the time, romney seems to have momentum. but now npr with a poll out showing romney is winning. >> i believe he picked up a lot of steam since last debate, that people are now making their decisions on the economy. the economy has not improved, although president obama seems have have made good decisions in his response to this storm, just one week of good presidency does not make up for 4 years of a lousy presidency. gerri: romney got a lot of momentum in last couple weeks, it is possible sandy could quash that, do you think it would have an impact on romney's 3-6rd? >> performance? >> it could. now you have a national disaster, it is hard to be partisan or political, i think it could slow some of the momentum, but it is important to keep in mine that president obama was really on a very negative campaign, he was using this term romnesia that seems so small now, that hurts president obama he was waging a negative personal -- not personal but out on the campaign trail. gerri: the tone is very different now, brad and justin
romney is pulling a little stronger. these polls, they get these poor people on the phone, talking and answering a bunch of questions. i mean it really is -- it starts to get a little ridiculous when you have to parse all the categories. i think it is interesting that romney in the last cbs/times poll, polled better in terms of people who were more confident about handling the economy and the deficit which are the one and two areas of concern among likely voters. now, that's pretty interesting that the person who has the lead in those things is behind in the polls. and it shows i think the big problem for romney now is where will a new gust of momentum come from. he needs one. there's a jobs report on friday. that could conceivably be it. what if it's not. and now you have a kind of desperate lob grenade, try to find something that connects because the president -- >> peanut butter give. >> the president gets to engage on the campaign. he gets to be doing his job, to be a very serious person, going to see the damage in new jersey, seeing what he can do. it really is a big problem f
the president leading romney but only by three points. a new franklin and marshall poll in pennsylvania shows the president up by just four points. this week a minneapolis star tribune poll showed a three-point race in minnesota. the romney campaign says this is evidence they have expanded the map. the obama campaign says this expansion of advertising shows it's a sign that romney has run out of routes to 270 electoral routes in the nine battlegrounds and needs more ways to get there, so they're throwing hail marys. expanding the map is something the romney campaign has tried to do all along. the question is, is it too late? the bottom line if romney does somehow win nationally by four or five points which is what they believe in the end, then not only will they win the battlegrounds, they will win one, two, maybe three of those leaning states we talked about. throw in oregon. but if this is the one-point race it's a different ball game and those three states probably stay in the leaning column. mitt romney tries to get back in campaign mode today. kicks off his final push to election day. a
